ohio voters had 24 hours to early vote in total. in franklin county where columbus is. and 18 1/2 in cuyahoga county where cleveland is. this year a total of 16 hours over those three days. fewer hours of early voting is how you get lines that look like this. in places like columbus and cleveland and akron. it's an impediment to voting, and it is on purpose. here's another one not on purpose. "the new york times" reporting today, quote, in ohio the crucial democratic strong hold of cuyohoga county which includes cleveland had more people vote early every day this year than in 2008, until monday. what happened monday? hurricane sandy. the day of the storm when the daily tally began to lag from its levels of four years ago. so barriers to voting this year are in some cases acts of god. like big, bad weather events. sometimes they are also acts of man. like republican state election officials working to make voting more difficult and less available. in either case, ohio hangs in the balance, as does the election. joining us now is steve kornacki. he's co-host of msnbc's "the cycle"
